Wild About Flowers
I’d love to fill my stunning flowers. All the blooms are grown by local suppliers and the bouquets look and smell as divine as an English Country garden.
Each one of delicate handkerchiefs is hand embroidered and comes in a pretty box with a little card from the person who made it.
This pretty wreath is made up of the gorgeous summer blooms – you’d never guess they are fake. Gerberas and other glorious seasonal flowers are used to create a riot of colour that you can bring out year after year.
This colourful vase will look fabulous holding really large vibrate blooms. The porcelain is decorated all the way around with wheat-straw flowers.
Who wouldn’t love a gift of two pots fresh flowers delivered to their door? The twin bunches come in enamel pots in pink or silver, packaged in a pink box with lime green tissue. When the flowers have died off, use the pots for plants of fresh flowers.
This hand-printed Rosa Blue Linen looks like a watercolour on fabric. With its palette of soft blues. It has a vintage feel but would look good in both a traditional and contemporary setting.
These retro mini envelopes will make your gift wrapping look especially colorful. They are just the right size for holding a note, a gift token or a tiny present.
